music The Burning, coiled... (First Thursday Improv)
9:00PM - - -
...snakestyle, channeling but not too pragmatic,
more like fragmatic,
notes held up captive,
base of spine exploding in
not-final daze, drifts off straight line:
"Nothing will produce Bad History[sounds!] more
directly nor brutally, than drawing a Line,
in particular a Right Line,
the very Shape of Contempt..."
Eyedrum's long-running Open Improv night occurs on the first Thursday of every month -- our monthly gathering for instrumentalists and improvisers of all stripes. Bring your instrument! Hosted by the indefatigable Robert Cheatham.
Opening reception for a Small Gallery show of new assemblage works by Atlanta bricoleur Ayed Hallim. Hallim, the pseudonymous alter ego of a former local arts journalist, creates works in found metal, spent packaging, and other repurposed materials. After the reception, Hallim performs during Open Improv on some of the "perjunction" instruments included in the exhibition. Exhibition on view through February 21.
